The PDWA is a common source for leaks.  Several years ago I tapped either side for a 1/8"NPT plug and took care of that little problem. problem was a total lack of rear brakes.   I could downshift to use engine braking and the rear would stick like glue.  After a few hot-laps, even the Hawk pads up front weren't enough to slow 13492 down coming into the hair-pin.

Fortunately, I have 3 spare axles 2 of which have the later (self-adjusting) drums.  This may be a good time to swap, but in the end it may simply be that I needed to bleed the brakes before hitting the track.  Just one of about 800 things that 'should' have been done.

Of course if I was going to go to that effort, maybe a set of disc brakes with E-brake capabilities is in store?  Which club member developed that kit last year????
